Volunteer with the Methow Conservancy!

The Methow Conservancy began as a volunteer organization and to this day supporters who donate their time and skills are essential to our conservation and education efforts!

Take a look at our upcoming volunteer activities, and stay tuned for a new calendar and registration feature!  To sign-up for anything listed, please use the “Volunteer Methow” link provided for each item.  If you have any trouble, or to simply be included in volunteer update emails (sent about once a month), contact Mary at mary@methowconservancy.org or 509-996-2870.

We could use some help on Tuesday Nov. 7th at our First Tuesday program!

While you’re at Volunteer Methow check out the Rally for the Valley Tally!  Rally for the Valley is an effort to inspire community members to volunteer at least 1,000 hours of service to local nonprofit organizations before the end of the year. Every hour counts!  As of Nov 1, the tally was just over 650 hours!  Register yourself with Volunteer Methow now and view volunteer opportunities by calendar date, by task type, or by organization.  There are 37 local organizations on the site and more joining every month.    

Ongoing, our primary volunteer opportunities fall into the following categories:

Weeds & Native Plants table at the Farmer's Market.

Education: Love to teach and interact with people?  Assist with our 4th grade “schoolyard science” during the school year; help with our noxious weed booth at the Farmers’ Market; co-lead free flower, bird or weed walks in the spring; public events and more!

Field Work: Want to be outside and get dirty?  Restoration and stewardship activities fill our spring-fall schedule – join us to improve habitat on conservation easements and public land!  Pull barbed wire and weeds, collect native seeds and plant trees; maintain the small public garden next to our office, and much more!  We’ll hold regular work parties April-Oct!

Odds & Ends: all the other office stuff that we always need help with: posting posters; prepare mailings; graphic design, create a new display about our work, filing and archiving; writing, editing and proofreading (we are about to revise and reprint our Good Neighbor Handbook!); we’ve got it all and much of it can be done at home!

ALSO, we welcome high school students for summer internships, community service work anytime or senior projects.
